Only ■ few more days reninin until 
the United States Government will put 
in fo'roo its drafting machine* To 'date, 
the Negroes have not turn given " 
chance to volunteer their service. As 
wa go '° press patriotism in at fever 
heigh!. IJannerV and bugles lie Call- 
in K men |o arms. The (Irat contingent 
of the United Mlntes Army has reached 
France and it is believed Ihnt more nrp 
on the way. 

No Room For the Negro 

Not with standing the fnet that n cam- 
paign is on for T0,0(W men io "volun- 
teer thuir services; nccoTding. fo Ihn 
statement of the local recruiting of- 
ficers there is no room for the Negro. 

So far as can be learned there is no 
preparation being mad? for additional 
regiments for Colored soldiers. 

An effort has been mode to induce the 
governor to. rocommlssion the old ftlh 
regiment X. O. of MiMouri, and-Opon It 
to Negro volunteers, " bat the effort 
seems to have met with little success. 
Tiiis ia looked upon by the Nefro. pa- 
triots u-a denial o.f equal rights of the 
citizens in a real democracy. 

"Preaident Wilson and Envoy Hoot 
are Receiving Russia. . They say, '■we 

yrar so that democracies may survive. ' .' ' 
"llc|p us make this . nation really 
free. Toll our. government that it must 
-liberate its people before it can claim 
free Russia as an ally. *■' — Suffragettes:' 
These words of fhe Suffragettes have 
a elesr ring which drives home the truth 
of the condition of ten million Negroes 
in this country today. 



Army Turns Down 
Negro Mechanic 

Robarr ii. Edmondsun, a Tuskegeo 
graduate, had (ho official* of the nnny

When tho government called forme- 
chanics to volunteer for the Second

made application from I lie Pueblo

whose names were submitted by B. F. 
Bush, president of the road. Although 
his amplication was plainly marked 
'"Colored,'' ha was ordered by tho 
army officials to cOme to SI. Louis. 
. When he arrived at the office here 
June S3 he was told by Colonel Town- 
send that "this is strictly a white 
man T s regiment. ' ' After admitting 
that- Edmonson 's application had been 
accepted, in .regular form and that his 
experience -was such as to qualify him 
for .service, tho colonel tried to dis- 
qualify Kim [by staling that it ssould 
be necessary for all engineers to 
.speak French, Edmonson demonstrat- 
ed that he spoke the language fluently. 

Major Hall" thejt admitted ehey were 
"up against ft** and after much .par. 
Irving, offered him .a* Chance in the 
Mess Department. Of course Ednion- 
son declined to accept' tho Offer and 
left, this .week for Pueblo to resume

NEGRO EXODUS 
IS INCREASING

Enough To Tempt Him To Stay. 
Few .Will Ever Return. 



Chicago, III. — the exodus of Negroes 
from the South to northern - iiiunufnc- 
turitig points, stronger nil.hin the hist 
month or su, is regarded as likely to 
increase considerably as the season nil 
vnnces. nnd to continue throughout the 
summer. Not more Ihuu n quarter of 
those leaving the South, it is cspecte.l. 
nill return: The condition is totally 
without precedent since reeonst ruction

Wabash Avenue Branch uf the V. M. 
C. A., fuys: '"Tho Negroes, are com 
ing into Chicago pretty re^ulurly und 
in Larger numbers now, 1 hud a man

also 'bad a man take a cart-fpl census. 
In one week they found 300 arrivals 
and in another week from IjaOO to L,

WHEN WILL THE SOUTH WAKE UP? <* 

In their dilemma overthe steady migration of the Negro north 
. ward, the white people u! the south, the editors and writers, are 
doing their best to stop the Negroes, by trying to justify lynching, 
disfranchisement, segregation, and some has eone so far as to say 
that the Negro should be "kept down." "He should be kept in hie 
place." 

They are loud in saying that the south ia the best place for the 
Negro. They still insist that the south understands the Negro best 
and is best prepared to deal with him. 

Notwithstanding the fact that over three hundred and fifty 
thousand colored people have left the south, and a steady stream is 
daily leaving, the white south is still saying "we know best how to 
handtV^the race question." Those who make such statements are 
either dishonest or they are ignorant. 

Mr. Taylor Kerwierly, who is a southerner and was formerly 
managing editor of the Montgomery Advertiser, strikes the key- 
note when he says: "the fact that the; whole economic, commercial, 
educational, and moral attitude with which the white man, has as- 
sumed, and still assumes, towards the Negro i3 wrong; -and that 
while the white man has robbed the Negro of millions of dolla'rs 
through keeping the black- man in ignorance, he has also lost bil- 
lions through the same method, and will continue to do so until he 
himself changes these deplorable conditions -conditions which 
should not be tolerated in any civilized community." The very men 
who ha,ve power to change these conditions are crying the loudest 
about the Negro exodus, we are told, and "they want to keep the 
Negro ;in the south, and they are doing everything. in their power 
to do so, except the one thing that will succeed-giving him a 
square deal." 

When will the south wake up? If it will only spend a little en 
ergy in trying honestly to provide, better living conditions for the 
Negro, the problem will be solved.

THREE NEGROES LYNCHED. 

Brute nature has broken out again in the sou tp. During the 
past week, three Negroes have- been lynched. The only trial was 
before 'Judge Lynch's Court." As usual none of these murderers 
will be brought to justice, nor will any attempt be made to even 
arrest the guilty parties. They say that the-acts represent the sen- 
timent of the community and the-arousea human nature, Human 
nature and brute nature are closely allied. The nature which re- 
sponds to law and order and abides by those precepts, for the gov- 
ernment of society, which human experience has taught are right, 
may properly be called human nature. But the nature which re- 
sponds to mob passion, and violates law and order, may be properly 
called bruit nature.. The higher culture the, individual 'possess, the 
further he is from the brute". So it is with communities: one man 
commits a crime, it may be a brutal one; .a- thousand men, in vio- 
lation of law. mete out summary punishment, to the first brute, but 
there area thousand brutes let loose on the community, with no 
check stall. Such condition is a pretty good"showing of the civili. 
sation in some parts of America. 



MEN DRAFTED HAVE NO CHOICE AS TO SERVICE. 

Men drafted into th* new armies by selective conscription 
must to a great extent, take their chances as to the branch oT ser- 
vice in which they serve. * "■■ 

Announcement by Provost Marshal General Crowder today was 
that assignments to different branches will be made at the discre- 
tiori of the War Department. 

Most of the men brought into, the army by draft are intended 
for the infantry. In no cases ara men. to be assigned to the navy. 
VVJ .still see no relief in sight, forthe Negro patriot. Those, who 
had the courage to apply to the recniittngofiicea in St: Louis, dur- 
ing(the past week, offering to volunteer their services, were told 
"nothing -doing. " The recruiting officers explaining, that all the 
colored regiments were full, and the seventy thousand volunteers 
called for by the President, were for white men only.

Thp 'lesson committee now tarn for 
a third quarter's lesson to a series of 
Undies In the Old Testament aa found 
in II Kings, Ezra and Nehemlah. As 
an Introduction, they have chosen this 
chapter In the book of Isaiah. 

Isaiah prophesied In the latter half 
of L'zzlah's reign, B, C. 760 and down 
to the early years, of the reign of 
Msnasseh about B. C 694 (ch. 1:1)." 
Thla event, took pln« probnbly B. G; 
735. The place was Jerusalem; tht 
kingdom of Israel was still In exist 
ence (for 33 years longer) being ut 
terly destroyed in B. C. 721. The 
name iBalah means "the salvation of 
Jehovub :" hla wife is called 
prophetess;" two of his son's 
named and his 'social position, was high, 
as shown by hla intimacy with kings. 
Isaiah lived in troublous times. He 
was a reformer seeking to rescue bis 
nation from the sins growing out of 
their disobedience to God. He was 
the leading statesman of hla time, the 
greatest of the prophets, 'an author, 
a heroic, alngIe-m!ndeil.'*patriotic, fear- 
lcN.fi. undaunted man of great personal 
power and Influence. He Was a proph- 
et, of hdpe;" be wrote' out of bis long 
life of faithfulness and fellowship with 
God. The book' 6! Isaiah fulls. Into 
lit divisions; chapters 1-39 be- 
ing chiefly historical. Interspersed with 
spngs afad poems; chapters 40-60 are 
a Collection of prophecies that have 

chiefly wllh the retun/ from 
c Babylonian exile and tbe days of 
future glory for the kingdom of God. 
I. Visions (w. 1-4). As we have 
said, Isaiah prophesied In a time of 
great need. The prophet was very 
much discouraged. In this passage he 
locates his vision at a special time 
and place (ch. 1 :1). Every man's 
great need today Is a real vision nf 
God. We .arc not so mach in need .of 
theories about God. aa' a vision of 
God himself. Uirlah's long reign of 
52 years, In which the kingdom pros- 
pered and the king's name was spread 
abroad, stopped as suddenly as an 
earthquake, and his glory' was eclipsed 
(see H Chron: MjKMB).' The place in 
which Isaiah saw his vision was the

If It be eaked'how much one ahonld 
read a! -a time for devotional purposes, 
let me answer with an itlostratlon. I 
Once saw, a picture or Jhe dlaclplea on 
the way to Emiheus. The'Maatcr has 
just, left them and the two men are 
looking at each other tn glad asrnnlsh- 
BWflL One of then Is holding; both 
hands over, hi* heart as he aaya with 
rapture, "Did not. our hearts . burn 
within as, while he talked with as by 
the way, and while; be opened to lis 
the Scrlptaresr He ran almost feel 
hla heart nam still as. he mail's the 
memory of that hlesaed walk. 
. If jN>aak Dow long gne ahali read 
his Bible for devotional pqrpoaea. I 
answer. "Bead until your heart boras 
and your soul thrflla with the ooo- 
Bdoaaness of God' s approval" 
Tt»- Momlna Watch,

verse two, its glory Ui verse three, 
and Its power la Indicated In verse 
four. The; whole earijL waa fllted with 
God's wondrous wjtdotn, love and P9 W ' 
er. Literally "the whole earth is fall 
of hla glory." The Hebrew word for 
holiness cornea from a word meaning 
"to set apart — set a distance from," 
Tlie holy Lord -la -not only sinless bqt 
he la sublime and absolute also. It 
may seem- difficult to harmonize 
Isolates vision- with John 1:1& yet 
these manifestations were one and the 
same, for all that saw Jesua shw God 
(John 14:1)). rtlng DExIah was dead 
but the' real king wasllvlng stilL high 
and lifted 'op.. Tbe attempt to reason 
ahout hltn. what he moat be nnd what 
he most not be, an if be were one 
of ourselves (Eph. 1 11*0, 21) la absurd. 
II.' -Divisions <w. 3-13), (I) The 
vision of the prophet (vv. 5-7). This 
vision wought conviction because It_ 
showed bow far separated fsom God 
the prophet wan. It also r brought 
conversion In that' he seknnwledgitl' 
himself to be unclenn.- himself and 
siirriiiiDtllngs to he vile. It'alsn led to 
cleansing. Mr Ihe klngheard Ihe voice 
of the prophet, removed his guilt and 
purged his sin. (2) The voice .sod 
proclamation fjaim the. king (w. 8-13). 
The king called for a messenger (v. 8) 
and at -once tbe. prophet la found. 
Someone oaa aaid that "a task without 
a vision is drudgery ; a' vision with- 
but. a task la a dream; while a task 
linked to a - vision win 
world." Not only did the king. ask for 
a messenger, hut be gave tbe mesaage 
which the' messenger ataa 
(w. B"12). The message was to be 
to hla own people; It was not to be 
a pleasant, ono. Verse 13- shows us 
this m'esaage In prophecy. Isaiah ought 
to folly proclaim the troth, hut the 
people would not nnderstand It, and 
the whi'le- cffiVt- of hla proclamation 
weald, be to harden them, 
the Application. 
WhM la yonr application of this 
-vision for laalahr Wa are a Chris- 
tian, nation, but there are many. de- 
grees and, hind* of Christians; those 
who sincerely try , to follow Jesus: 
theae who llye- under a Christian, gov-

tian influenevt. There la only .One 
way to Save this nation from going the 
way of Nineveh and Tyre ; that is, that
